Retrofitting NYC apartments for the ADA

"Every" apartment building erected since 1991 in New York City may be out of compliance. And say goodbye to foyer closets in future, since the space may be needed to let wheelchairs pass each other. The New York Times reported the bad news this morning, and Hans Bader of CEI notes the irony:

the building owners already spent hundreds of millions of dollars to ensure compliance with New York City's own disabilities-discrimination law, Local Law 58, which was viewed by many as being more exacting than the ADA. Now, 100,000 apartments may need to be redesigned in New York City alone.
